"In Your Eyes" is a song by Kylie Minogue, taken from her eighth studio album Fever (2001). The song was written by Kylie, Richard Stannard, Julian Gallagher and Ash Howes, while production was handed by Stannard and Gallagher. The song served as the second single from the album, due to the success of previous single "Can't Get You Out of My Head". However, due to late releases of "Can't Get You Out of My Head", it was not released in the United States.
"In Your Eyes" is a pop song that features disco styles of music, which received generally positive reviews from music critics, with many praising the composition and production, but others stating that it wasn't a highlight to the album. The song was generally successful in the record charts, peaking inside the top ten in countries including Australia (where it debuted at one), Ireland, Finland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Denmark and the United Kingdom, where it sold 164,808 copies, and was certified Silver. It also became a dance club hit in the UK, peaking at number seven on the Club Chart.
The music video, which featured many visual effects and neon colours, was directed by Dawn Shadforth. It received favorable reviews from critics, praising the visual effects. "In Your Eyes" won the Best Dance Award at the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2002. The song has been performed in a majority of Kylie's tours and was recently performed on her Aphrodite World Tour in 2011 in Japan only.
After the major success of "Can't Get You Out of My Head", it was announced that "In Your Eyes" would be released as the album's second official single, set for a February 2002 release. The song was intended to be released in Canada and the United States by Capitol Records, however the idea was scrapped due to a late release of "Can't Get You Out of My Head". A digital release of the single was released however. To replace the idea, Kylie's third official single "Love at First Sight" was served as the second American single in mid-2002, remixed by Ruff & Jam.
"In Your Eyes" was released on 18 February 2002. It was originally scheduled for release in January, but was delayed because of the airplay popularity of "Can't Get You Out of My Head". It debuted at number three on the UK singles chart, becoming her twenty-second top ten single. The song remained on the chart for seventeen weeks, 3 of which were in the top twenty. It was also an airplay hit in the UK, where it reached number one. The song also peaked at number seven on the Club Chart.
The single became a hit elsewhere in Europe, reaching the top five in Croatia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia. "In Your Eyes" was released Canada (where it peaked at number eleven) and Mexico, but not the US.
In Australia, "In Your Eyes" was released as scheduled on 21 January 2002. The song was certified gold prior to its release on pre-sales only. It debuted at number one on the ARIA singles chart and became the fourth single by Kylie to reach the top position since 2000. It peaked at number 18 on Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (RIANZ), and stayed on the charts for 18 weeks.
